Quatuor Ébène

string quartet
Biography

Quatuor Ébène began its rise to fame in 2004 as winner of the ARD Music Competition, following studies with the Quatuor Ysaÿe in Paris, and also Gábor Takács, Eberhard Feltz and György Kurtág. Today it is internationally fêted for its distinctive, charismatic playing, and the complexity of its oeuvre, including its trademark jazz and pop improvisations. The quartet celebrated its 20th stage anniversary in 2019 and 2020 by live-recording Beethoven’s 16 string quartets for its label Erato, in a Beethoven Around the World project on six continents. Its 2021 ‘Round Midnight album then placed a brand new jazz-inspired work by quartet cellist Raphaël Merlin between Dutilleux and Schoenberg. Beyond numerous awards for its recordings, including Gramophone, BBC Music Magazine and the Midem Classic Award, the quartet became in 2019 the first ever ensemble to be honoured with the Frankfurt Music Prize.
